FAA proposes T-routes around busy California airspace

Pilots flying aircraft equipped with IFR-certified GPS units will be able to navigate around San Francisco and Sacramento, Calif., airspace easier if an FAA proposal for four area navigation routes (T-routes) is approved. AOPA worked with the FAA to develop the routes designated T-257, T-259, T-261, and T-263. AOPA has been a strong proponent of T-routes for eight years because they improve air navigation efficiency and safety. The association will be filing comments in support of the routes before the April 4 deadline and encourages members to do the same. For more details and to submit comments, read the proposal. See AOPA Online for graphical depictions of the routes.
